It Was Already Pretty Deep In Louisiana

Michelle Malkin points out a story from the Mudville Gazette showing that bad blood has existed between Blanco and Nagin before.

Former Louisiana resident Greyhawk at Mudville Gazette has the lowdown on the feuding between Gov. Kathleen Blanco and New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin.


This quote is pretty telling:

Nagin singled out Gov. Kathleen Blanco for criticism, saying that the governor had asked for 24 hours to think over a decision when time was a luxury that no one, especially refugees, had.

“When the president and the governor got here, I said, ‘Mr. President, Madame Governor, you two have to get in synch. If you don’t, more people are going to die.” Blanco and Bush met privately at his insistence, Nagin said, after which Bush came out and told Nagin that he had given Blanco two options, and she requested a full day to decide.

“It would have been great if we could have walked off Air Force One and told the world we had it all worked out,” Nagin said. “It didn’t happen, and more people died.”

A full day to decide? And we’re supposed to believe it’s all Bush’s fault.
